PHOTOS: 20 adorable queer couples celebrating Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day has arrived, and while those of us in couples fret over what to buy our baes, and those of us who are single contemplate how to celebrate “Singles Awareness Day” (and we’ve all been there), we should all keep in mind how far the queer community has come in proving love is love.

Like these folks. These adorable couples have decided to show off their affections in honor of the Hallmark holiday via Instagram. Normally that kind of romantic exhibitionism can invite an eye roll or ten, but today, take satisfaction in knowing that, in light of the current political climate, love stands firm and will not hide. Now, if everyone would just get off their ass and vote as if their love depended on it…

Happy Valentine's Day to my universe ❤ I love you so much with all my heart and these past two years together have been filled with my very best of memories with my very best friend. You make me excited to wake up every morning, knowing that I'll be able to find you right next to me either looking angelic while still sleeping or awake and watching The Office while drinking delicious coffee. You make my heart flutter every time you speak, and you make me tingle with joy every time you touch me in any way. I love you so much and I can't imagine my life without you, and so I hope we can continue to have many more little Valentine's Days and more cuddles and more kisses❤ I love you now till beyond, baby 💕
